In many areas of the USA even, salaries (wages) are still depressed and do not match the increase in fuel costs.

They don't match the increase in food costs, either. That's a pet peeve that goes way beyond photography.

Wow, such hate with all this "search first" BS. It's not like it is some simple tech question that just need an answer and thats all.

It's a conversational topic. Is it a new topic? Perhaps not, but I question how many new threads there would be if people were only allowed to make new threads as long as it was not something that anyone else has brought up or asked before.......and looking at the "Similar Threads" links at the bottom shows me the newest thread being a 3 year old "85L peeves" thread......I don't know about anyone else but one of my pet peeves on the forum I mod for is Necro-threads!

Now what is my photography pet peeve? Instagram and all the people who take crappy photos, put a pre-made filter on it, and instantly think they are an amazing photographer.

My pet peeve about my own photography is the fact that I do not make enough time to shoot when I know I have plenty of time to do so

Almost as much as their idiotic friends saying "you're an amazing photographer, you should totally go pro..." i actually saw one girl agree to do someones wedding photos with her iPhone. I cringed and laughed at the woman who asked her.


I want to second shoot a wedding so I know the score before I do my own.

Two? Big deal. I remember when you could get . . .

[discreet pause]

. . . somewhat more than that. Or a few pounds of ground beef.

Where does the time go!

1980 in the Midwest, white bread was $0.48-0.49 per 1 lb. loaf, in 2012 it is $1.20-1.39 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Another article got prices for 1914 and 1924 came from The Chicago Daily News Almanac and Year Book, 1926. Prices for 1976 and 2002 were collected at Kroger, Starkville, Mississippi.

Bread was 0.06 in 1914, $0.09 in 1924, $0.35 in 1976, and $1.49 in 2002

Yet another article says
Average Cost Loaf of Bread Food (external link)
1930 9 cents , 1940 10 cents , 1950 12 cents , 1960 22 cents ,
1970 25 cents , 1980 50 cents , 1990 70 cents , 2008 $2.79


In comparison, gasoline in US
$0.20 in 1930, $0.18 in 1940, $0.27 in 1950, $0.31 IN 1960, $0.35 in 1970, $0.86 IN 1980, $1.00 in 1990, $1.51 in 2000, $2.79 in 2010, $3.53 in 2011

My pet peeve: referring to someone as a "genius" based on his/her photographs. Performing brain surgery requires genius; inventing the transistor required genius; solving Fermat's Last Theorem required genius. There may be photographers who are also geniuses, but you can't tell by looking at their photos.

I always knew Ansel Adams just got lucky and was always in the right place at the right time.:lol:

I don't really think all brain surgeons qualify as geniuses, just individuals that have acquired the knowledge of how to do a specific type of surgery through extensive training. I've seen far to many people in specialized fields go there for a paycheck, including surgeons to call them all geniuses. If a specific surgeon brings an original technique he/she has come up with to the operating table then I would say they have extraordinary skill bordering on genius of course.

It's the same as saying all photographers that took a course in photography by one of the more reputable names in the industry such as Chris Orwig will start producing work that will rival his. A few will listen and learn from Chris then apply it to there own style of photography. Others will become the cookie cutter type and just do it for the paycheck and not try to produce uniqiue works of their own.

Using Ansel Adams as an example though you could say he took a picture of a landscape and by using his specific creative process transformed the raw image into a work of art that lives on long after the creator is gone from this world. To me that would qualify as a person that would qualify as a genius in his field.

I think showing women as they wish they looked rather than how they actually look is quite genius of me.

If you want to see them more than once as a customer or model than we all contribute to the grand lie that photoshop is.:lol:

As per my title I reserve the right to say use the search!!!:p

Aside from that, people that use LV constantly. I get it on occasion but when you see their hand shake and they're simply struggling with it and keep taking the photo over and over and over cause it's not coming out. Yeah, there's a reason for that.

Don't want to get too much into the 'search' thing, but having similar threads doesn't really bother me... as long as a decent amount of time has gone by. There's no hard line, but as a general guide I would say 2 weeks is too soon, while a year is just fine.

I don't know why this dynamic exists, but resurrected threads almost never get the same attention as a new thread.

I don't know if it's a pet peeve per say but e other day I was in the camera store and a man announced he wanted to upgrade to a 1D mkIII as he felt the quality of his work was beyond his gear. Looked at the camera and promptly asked the salesman how to put it in auto... I nearly had a heart attack.
